FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DALLAS, TX, May 5, 2014 – Alsbridge, the leading benchmarking, sourcing and transformation advisory firm, will transfer ownership of Outsourcing Center LLC to Alsbridge’s founder Ben Trowbridge.
“Under our new strategy and 5-year plan, it makes sense to spin-off the Outsourcing Center media business to operate independently from Alsbridge,” says Derek Toone, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Alsbridge. “This move will better enable us to focus on our core management consulting services helping Global 2000 companies to cut costs, enable their businesses and mitigate risk.”
The newly independent Outsourcing Center will focus on online media and communications for the sourcing industry and provide thought provoking articles, white papers and opinions on the state and future of technology, outsourcing, global business services and telecommunications. Commenting on the transfer, Ben Trowbridge states: “The Outsourcing Center provides tremendous value to both buyers and providers in the outsourcing market. I look forward to building the business and plan to announce additional staff positions and service offerings by the end of Q2.”
